Transfer Students

Planning to transfer?

If you plan to transfer to a four-year university after you earn your associate degree, we can help! Our dedicated team of Transfer Coaches are here to be a resource for you as you continue your academic journey. To help you get started, we have created a transfer checklist that outlines the general requirements for transferring to a four-year university.

Please note that each institution has its own specific deadlines and requirements. It is critical that you are working closely with your institution and your tnAchieves Transfer Coach to ensure you are on track.
